    I am a librarian, and abhor the thought of library theft.

    That said, textbooks are a racket, and among the most overpriced books out there (A Casual Vacancy notwithstanding). It's not hard to see why you have students turning to theft. Yes, still not right. But give textbooks a reasonable price tag and a lot of this will simply vanish.

      I wish I could've rec'ed but got busy.

      The upshot is now to make me look like a learned attorney (books are one of the "signs") I can buy basically brand new text books on half.ebay to put on my shelf for 2 dollars or so.
